5 GCA GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS CH. 3OFFICE OF PUBLIC PROSECUTOR CHAPTER 36 OFFICE OF PUBLIC PROSECUTOR NOTE: This chapter was added by P.L. 24-288:1 and repealed by P.L. 25-44:2, never having been implemented. Public Law 25-44:1 states as that law’s intent: Section 1. Legislative Findings and Intent. I Liheslaturan Guåhan finds that subsequent to the passage of Public Law Number 24-288, the United States Congress amended the 1950 Organic Act of Guam to allow I Liheslaturan Guåhan to create an elected Attorney General for Guam. At the same time, Public Law Number 24-288 contained a provision that the first elected Public Prosecutor would not be elected in the event that the Organic Act were amended to permit an elected Attorney General. However, the Attorney General of Guam cannot be elected until the year 2002. I Liheslaturan Guåhan finds that Guam has long been in need of an elected Attorney General, to bring accountability to the prosecution of criminals. I Liheslaturan Guåhan therefore intends that Public Law Number 24-288 be repealed and re-enacted to create an elected Attorney General of Guam. NOTE: P.L. 28-068:IV:43 (Sept. 30, 2005) purported to repeal section 36105 of this chapter. However, the entire chapter was previously repealed as indicated in the note above by P.L. 25-044. ---------- 1 COL120106
